Tuks FM proved its commitment to uplifting the community it serves by recently handing over a sizeable cheque to the University of Pretoria’s Student Representative Council (SRC).The cheque for R123 416 was received by Dr Matete Madiba, Director: Student Affairs, Dr Willem Jorissen, Deputy Director: Student Affairs, as well as the President and Treasurer of the SRC, Kwena Moloto and Duane van Wyk respectively.Tuks FM’s Station Manager, Leanne Kunz, says the initiative is one way the station reaches out to its community: “As a campus-based community radio station, Tuks FM’s purpose is to enrich our community, a large part of which is the student fraternity of the University of Pretoria. We are honoured to be able to assist in enriching the lives of needy students.”
The station will also conduct several other outreach projects during the course of the year in a bid to enrich the lives of the broader community. These include a charity golf day in winter and a clean-up operation in Hatfield in spring.
